It places strict caps on how much individuals can spend on candidates ($500 for statewide office, $100 for other public offices) and bans contributions from corporations and unions entirely.[1] This measure goes hand-in-hand with 2006's Measure 46 that sought to amend the free speech areas of the Oregon Constitution that allow unlimited contributions from any individual or organization.

Ballot title

Francis G. Nelson, Peter Buckley, and Bryn Hazell


This measure appeared on the ballot at the 2006 General Election and passed. However, Measure 46, which sought to amend the constitution to allow such a statute failed.

The Secretary of State, in consultation with the Attorney General, determined that Ballot Measure 47 will be ineffective until the Oregon Constitution is found to allow, or is amended to allow, limitations on campaign contributions and expenditures.[3]
